Favicons for personal blogs

You didn’t notice I was gone, did you? It’s the first time since 2013 that this blog receives what blogs should get as often as possible – a post.

Before I started writing this post-about-posts (sorry ’bout that), I spent a lot of time looking for possible favicon, as a (albeit very subtle) way to wake up this sleeping creature. (Agreed: the best way would have been to just write, but looking for favicons are so much more fun!).

How to get real pictures in here…

This blog is now – I think at least – very sleek and stylish looking. Waaay too stylish. Which doesn’t go well with me at all, I like when something’s a bit off, a bit crooked, lumpy at the edges. But of course, what I don’t like is to redesign a blog template from scratch – it would definitely be crooked and waaaay off, but it would also not work very well, most likely.
